PHASE III : IN-SEASON

In-Season: Phase III Flexibility Practice the sport! To prevent injury after long activity days with many rounds, you must rehabilitate those sport specific muscles. As with Off and Pre-season training, stretching all muscle groups before and after play will aid in not only a successful golf swing with a larger range of motion, but movement control and balance as well. A loss of balance can reduce a backswing or completely change the swing plane and, thus, the shot outcome.

The basic flexibility exercises that address the muscle-joint actions most relevant to golfers are standing or seated hamstring, lower back, and upper back and shoulder stretches.
